  • Social Sciences Department
  • The Social Sciences Department was created in order to provide students with a good background in various social sciences, with a particular focus on Economics, Politics, Sociology, Anthropology, and Psychology.

    The aim of the department is to prepare students to continue their educational and professional journeys, with potential final destinations in Law, Economics, Management, Political Sciences, Psychology, and many other fields.

    Emphasis is placed upon essay writing, which trains students to think logically and make connections between their different subjects.

The crucial role of the Social Sciences

is to try to understand and describe the world around us. It is a world full of interdependent institutions and of rapid change, both global and local. When analysing the most burning questions of contemporary affairs, such as the future of the European Union, an interdisciplinary approach combining history, politics, economics, and sociology is crucial.

Young people are able to grasp different points of view, making their outlook on the world a complex and interesting one. We prepare our students to become active members of society as well as responsible citizens of Europe and the world.

Economics

The Economics course provides students with insights enabling them to understand the complexity of modern economies and international relations.

The course is also enriched with topics from different disciplines, in order to align the programme with current academic discourse and the most popular fields of research, including Behavioural Economics, Experimental Economics, and Game Theory.

Economics:

  • Microeconomics​
  • Macroeconomics​
  • International Economics​
  • Development Economics

Politics

Politics aims to prepare students to navigate the complicated world of today’s global changes.

Students will be taught the extent to which the traditional approach to politics has changed and evolved.

What is more, the programme gives the students numerous opportunities to analyse political systems through specific case studies.

Politics:

  • British Politics and Government
  • European Union
  • American Politics and Government

History

In the Social Sciences Department we believe that it is impossible to study social issues without a good grounding in history – an understanding of how the state and its citizens have interacted over the centuries.

Students get to know the details of the events that have shaped the world as we know it. With the teacher’s guidance, they learn how to assess critically and understand the significance of each phenomenon.

History:

  • French Revolution​
  • Soviet Russia​
  • Civil Rights and Race Relations in the US​
  • International Relations 1879-1945

“Human Sciences”

The Social Sciences Department would not be complete without the “Human Sciences”.

Our programme combines insights from Sociology, Anthropology, and Social Psychology. We believe that these disciplines help students better to understand political, historical, and prepare to design strategies to address those issues.

  • Education
  • Culture and Identity
  • Global Development
  • Crime and Deviance

  • Social Psychology
  • Cognitive Psychology
